Artist Mauro Restiffe in conversation with Rodrigo Moura
Memory Game: the Photographer, the City and the Archive. May 2016
Curator and writer Rodrigo Moura and artist Mauro Restiffe discussed the approaches Restiffe adopted in his solo exhibition Post-Soviet Russia 1995/2015, exploring them within the broader context of his practice. The talk was moderated by Snejana Krasteva.
Examining some of Restiffe’s key series of works, the talk brought to light the particular way the artist captures the feeling of an epoch through photography, and along with this, the interrelations between the culture of a place, a city, its architecture, and everyday life.
The themes Restiffe has been investigating over the past 20 years come together in Post-Soviet Russia 1995/2015, in which the artist explores many new directions, such as, for example, revisiting his own vast archive of images.
